Revisiting Sangharakshita’s classic talk from the 1970s, four members of the Triratna Buddhist Order offer bold, challenging, perspectives of what it could be to engage anew with his radical vision of a new kind of society. Through the twin lenses of diversity and climate change, we hear questioning voices and affirming notions of community-based and personal Dharma practice in a suffering world. The invitation to examine our own perspectives and biases is both essential and potentially liberating, opening up the chance to reconnect with some founding principles of the Order itself.
